New life to abandoned site
Marketed as an “iconic beltline property,” Centre 10 is this year’s Alberta Construction Magazine Top Projects winner in the Commercial—Over $50 Million category.
Located in downtown Calgary, Centre 10 is built on the site of the former Gaslight Square retail strip. Two attempts had been made by others to build condo towers there, but when the Centron Group of Companies bought the abandoned site, the concept changed to a single-building, mixed-use office retail development.
The site contained a completed seven-level underground parkade structure, as well as the second-floor slab. Once the land-use change was obtained, Centron designed a 10-storey commercial office building consisting of 355,000 square feet of office and retail space.
